|Herzog - This Time We're Infinite|
Just three months have passed since Herzog's last EP release at Serein, and we are delighted to welcome him back with the follow up, 'This time we're infinite'. Since his debut release I had been eagerly awaiting fresh material and I was not disappointed. This EP (which is perhaps closer to being a mini-album, at over thirty minutes in length) further builds upon Herzog's love of fragmented sound and gently unfolding rhapsodies...

|Michael Trommer - Tree Line|
Michael Trommer is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Toronto, Canada. Prior to landing at Serein, Michael enjoyed releases on a large number of notable labels, both net based and otherwise. In the past he has contributed work to the Thinner netlabel, while more recently Fountain Music have released a split EP by himself and 'Genevieve'. While the aforementioned releases saw him assume his 'Sans Soleil' moniker (a name he reserves for his 4/4 oriented output), Trommer also creates contemporary...

|Marcel Tuerkowsky - Night Tapes|
For the seventh release at Serein we are graced with an EP from renowned Berlin composer, Marcel Tuerkowsky. Marcel had previously contributed a composition to the 'Tracks in the Snow' compilation, so it is with great pleasure that we welcome him back. This is a collection of work restored from analog tape, dubbed the 'lost tapes' which he has revived for us to hear. The pieces were written after dark and have a peaceful, introspective quality to which "Night Tapes" kindly lends its name...

|konntinent - all lines lead in|
It is always a pleasure to introduce a new name to the site, and Konntinent is no exception. Hailing from London, Konntinent (also known as Antony Harrison) arrives in true style with a four track EP of hauntingly beautiful soundscapes. 'All lines lead in' is a wholly remarkable EP, particularly striking is Konntinent's ability to weave a story into his music - the EP conveys a very definite feeling of beginning, middle and end, visiting upon eerie and unsettling amalgams of strings and field re...

|1000 Hours of Staring - The Seagull|
Hot on the heels of their debut EP at Serein, 'Cooperative Thread', it is time again to welcome 1000 Hours of Staring to the Serein catalogue. The lineup this time includes David Daranjo and Mike Kazantsis working alongside Mike Ramsey. This change in ranks marks also a distinct change in sound for the group, leaving behind the gentle melodies of 'Cooperative Thread' in favour of densely layered sound...

|Muhr - Poussière|
Number fourteen at Serein marks the most welcome return of Muhr, the man responsible for the first release in the Serein catalog many moons ago. Whilst Muhr has contributed many tracks to other labels in the interim, we're honoured to present his latest offering, which may be his most confident effort yet. Poussiere (meaning 'dust') is very much a development of a sound Muhr has been exploring for some time, the undercurrents of previous offerings are present (notably 'we are desolved' and 'la c...

|1000 Hours of Staring - Co-operative Thread|
'1000 Hours of Staring' is the alias under which Mike Ramsey and occasional collaborator Mike Bigel record music. Here is an EP of elegant instrumental music, crafted from guitars and farfisa organ, field recordings and layer upon layer of dense sound, sound that is alive with energy and purpose. Now I'm not much of one for over-complicated genre naming, honestly, but I can't help but file this one in my mind under psychedelic post rock folk...

|OCP - Atmos EP|
As promised, here is the long awaited EP on Serein from Portugese artist, OCP. Those of you with a good memory will remember the contribution he made to the 'Tracks in the Snow' compilation at the beginning of the year, we've been eager to release more of his work and are now pleased to present you with 'Atmos'. This five track EP represents perfectly what OCP is all about, combining elements of ambient and glitch through to the modest sounds of dub techno and stripping it right back to the core...

|The Inventors of Aircraft - Unknown Language|
Unknown Language is the debut release by South London based 'The Inventors of Aircraft'. A name which might suggest multiple members, but which is in fact the sole invention of one Phil Tomsett. I first became aware of the IOA after receiving a short selection of tracks to listen to. I was hooked. I asked Phil to write some more pieces with a view to releasing a full length album, he obliged, and 'Unknown Language' was born...

|Neuf Meuf - It's Cold in Space|
Well, it's been just over two months since the last release, but we hope you'll forgive us when you hear the new addition to the catalog and the Serein family. This is an exciting one for us as it marks several 'firsts' in our history. The first full length release, the first co-release, and the first time you'll be able to get your hands on a hard copy of the music as well as the usual mp3 format - you lucky blighters! So, not only do we welcome 'Neuf Meuf', the recording artist, to the ranks, ...

|V.A. - Demeter weeps|
'In the landscape of spring, there is neither better nor worse. The flowering branches grow naturally, some long, some short.'' -Zen saying, It is as winter collapses that we release this magnificient compilation, somewhat of a soundtrack for the rejuvenation of the comatose vegetation, soaked in melting snow, stretching for the heat we all so direly waited for in our 4 months of deep sleep. Compiling vairous forms of ambient music, from academic to organic, to loopy, and more, all these wonderf...

|1000 hours of staring - tapestry|
Tapestry is an album of, for want of a better word, 'b-sides'. That is to say, older tracks that Mike (1000 Hours of Staring) has reworked, or which he simply couldn't see fitting elsewhere. Surprising then, that what we have here is a coherent collection of tracks taking us on a skewed journey through carnival atmospheres and crowded city streets, in the latter half of the album Mike favours a more relaxed tone, though this release could certainly be said to contain some of his most raw work to...

|VA - Tracks In The Snow|
Serein is proud to announce the arrival of a very special collection of work to see in the new year. Tracks in the snow is a compilation EP featuring some familiar names and welcoming new friends for 2006. Swathed in warm analogue waves and washes, field recordings and live instrumentation are six tracks that further establish Serein's sound as a collective. While each individual brings their own unique style to the work as a whole, it is refreshing to hear such diverse compositions that work so...

|Nest - Nest EP|
Nest is the collaborative project of Otto Totland (Deaf Center / Type Records) and Huw Roberts (Serein). The two started working together after forging a strong friendship as former members of the Miasmah label. This self-titled EP is their first work publicly released, so it is a great honour that we are able to offer it to you here. Both pianists, there is little wonder that after exploring a plethora of musical styles, the two find themselves most at home writing traditionally structured piec...

After a lot of hard work, planning and preparation it is with great pride and excitement that we unveil the tenth release at Serein. On the cusp of celebrating our first birthday it seems fitting that we should also hit double figures, here's to the next ten. The release is titled 'OIO' and is a VA album featuring label mainstays Marcel Türkowsky, Herzog, Stephane Leonard, Huw Roberts, Mark Templeton, 1000 Hours of Staring and Muhr...
